Great Moments In Commercial History: Allied Discounts Tires

This commercial is amazing! It’s everything a commercial should be. Funny. Honest. Baffling. Meagan writes in:

I grew up in the Tampa Bay area, breeding ground for mosquitos, old people, and bizarre TV commercials. The old Allied Discount Tires (or if you pronounce it like the pitchman, Taahrs) spots are some of the best. You can’t taste-test tires!

No, you can’t, Meagan. No, you can’t.

If you’d like to nominate a commercial for our weekly series, Great Moments In Commercial History, send an email to tips [at] consumerist [dot] com. Put “Great Moments in Commercial History” in the subject. —MEGHANN MARCO
